The Muse: Ashley Monroe, “Like A Rose”

Videos by American Songwriter

As one third of Pistol Annies, Ashley Monroe sings old-school country tunes about taking pills and chasing boys. Here, she gets back to her solo career with the melancholic title track of her second album. Over a boom-chic chord progression that evokes Johnny Cash and a lush pedal steel riff worthy of an Emmylou Harris ballad, she delivers a biographical song about a girl who can’t seem to put down roots, no matter where she goes.
